Hey guys, instead of me staring at my bike wondering if this is normal i wanted to show it to the experts. Im not sure if this is normal or if i possibly bent the rear triangle or rear wheel.
when the bike is flipped upside and you look at the rear wheel it seems somewhat off center. The chainside of the frame measured 1/2 inch between the tire and the frame...the rotor side only measure 3/16 of an inch measured the same. I measured it from right below the knobs on each side.. when i spin the tire i notice that the tread isnt perfect but it measures the same on all spots of tire. i also measured it from the rim and the chain side still has more room.. im not sure if this is normal or if something is wrong.. here are some pics..
here is where i measured it on both sides...
sorry for all the pictures but i wanted to show you what i see....im new to biking so dont bash me too hard if this is just a simple mistake on my part!!! i understand this could be a defected tire or something else, but i wanted to make sure that the frame isnt built this way on purpose, or if both sides of the rear triangle are normally built identical.
